Refugee Week 2011: Freedom from fear

Refugee Week 2011
When refugees flee, they are forced to leave behind all they know and love.
Refugee Week 2011 will be held from Sunday 19 June to Saturday 25 June, coinciding with World Refugee Day on Monday 20 June.

Refugee Week provides an important opportunity for asylum seekers and refugees to be seen, listened to and valued.

The theme for Refugee Week - 'Freedom from Fear' - hopes to draw attention not just to the fear that compels refugees to run, but the relief that they feel when they are welcomed into another country and given the opportunity to rebuild their lives.
